Enter Dignityland! A game on social rights
A game for learning about social rights with young people through human rights education
In the framework of the Enter! project, the youth sector of the Council of Europe has produced in 2012 the Enter Dignityland! cards game on social rights, in which players, as Members of Parliament in an imaginary country called Dignityland, are asked to decide on the social policies concerning social rights within a development plan for the next five years. Through argumentation and decision-making processes, players learn more about social rights and their links to social policies.
The game can be played in different contexts, in formal and non-formal educational settings, as part of a training course, in schools, in peer groups or within any educational activity.
Enter Dignityland! is based on an original game about social rights, created by the Community Volunteers Foundation in Turkey, Toplum Gönüllüleri Vakfı (TOG) and Istanbul Bilgi University NGO Training and Research Unit from Turkey, called “Life is hard” (“Hayat Zor!”), and has been adapted with their contributions and permission.
We hope this game will be an important step in exploring social rights!
